Address and others

Today it rained in Fukuoka. Not hard. Just steady. I watch Sumo wresting on TV, ate noodles and spent more time reading Isaiah. Later, in search of a fingernail clipper I walked west, towards the GooDay (the Japanese equivalent of Wal*mart and Home Depot having a child). I didn't find it, but listened to Death Cab for Cutie while I shopped. I found a clipper at the neighborhood grocery store. It was about $5.

Saturday I met a bunch of kids from the JET program teaching English over in Saga City. It was really cool to hang out with Americans. Neither I nor DK fell head over heels in love, but I really wanted to get phone numbers. I didn't. We ate Thanksgiving dinner together and that was really good.

DK and I wrote a puppet show for the service next Sunday. In my opinion, it is some of the best prose ever written.

For everyone who will send music:
Stephen Pihlaja
Grand Haim, 502
2-12-23 Susenji
Nishi-Ku, Fukuoka
Japan 819-0373
Call me at: 82-092-807-7356

If any of you would like something Japanese, I could help you out. There are a lot of those dumb trucker hats that were cool about 12 months ago.

I will miss Pedro the Lion show at Knox College this weekend and miss seeing Braille rock it with them. I will be there in spirit as I do my laundry on Saturday morning.
